A. Training No Pay in Avocational, Recreational Courses Iowa World war II veterans planning to train under the GI bill were cautioned by the veterans administration Thursday that a new federal law prohibits the V. A. from paying the costs of any courses which are determined to be a vocational or recreational in nature. J. E. Cooksie, contact representative of the Mason City office, said the recently enacted law applies to educational and training courses commenced or re-commenced by veterans after June 30, 1948. Veterans who commenced or re-commenced training prior to July 1 in courses affected by the new law will be permitted to complete their training, he added. Several Courses Affected Training determined by the V. A. to be a vocation or recreational in character includes certain courses in dancing, photography, glider training, bar tending, personality -development, entertainment, instrumental and vocal music, public speaking, sports and athletics, and any single subject course which is not a part of a general program leading to an educational or employment objective. If a veteran wants training in any of the courses considered by the V. A. to be ayocational or recreational, Cooksie said, he must submit to the V. A. complete justification that the course he wants is in connection with his present or contemplated business or occupation, and prior approval of the V. A. must be obtained before such training may be started. Flight Course Special The new law, the V. A. official explained, stipulates that flight training and related aviation courses a veteran may take in connection with his present or contemplated business or occupation won't be considered avocation or recreational. Flight courses elected by a veteran at an approved school will not be considered avocational or recreational if the veteran submits evidence prior to the start of training that the course is occupationally connected and that he is physically qualified to obtain the type of license which will enable him to attain his employment objective. Although subject to the pi-ovi- sions of the new law. Cooksie said, courses not generally considered by the V. A. to be avocational or recreational in character include approved institutional on - farm training and apprenticeship training; courses of education in approved schools for which credit is granted toward an educational objective; courses of vocational training in approved schools; approved courses in pn-the-job training, and courses in applied music, physical education and public speaking offered by institutions of higher learning as an .integral part of a course leading to an educational objective. be effective July 31.
